Westminster Hall debate initiated by Deidre Brock MP (Edinburgh North and Leith) (SNP). The hour long debate takes place on Wednesday 15 March 2017 at 4.30pm.

The debate comes as the UK Parliament approaches the end of its consideration of the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill, and the UK Government prepares to make a notification under Article 50 TEU of its intention to withdraw from the EU. It comes two days after the First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, announced that she intended to seek approval from the Scottish Parliament to begin talks with the UK Government to gain authority to hold a second independence referendum for Scotland.
